Lets Talk About It: Taurus & Stress

by Jo Tracey April 24, 2010 03:21 AM EST
Stress. Each of us deals with it differently. Some of us look for it, some avoid it. Some of us eat through it, drink through it, move through it, or bury our heads in the sand until it passes. Each sun sign has a general level of tolerance and way of dealing with stress. We can learn to deal with it better by replenishing our personal energy bank accounts- that of the 2nd house.
 
Taurus is geared towards containment and storage. This concept is extended towards retention of emotions and pressures.  The calm and placid facade that is presented to the world may hide a veritable pressure cooker of unreleased stress and anxiety. When the lid on that Taurus pressure cooker blows the earth shakes and those horns can disembowel anyone within reach.   
 
If she does manage to keep the cork in, the stresses build and build- if not expressed the resultant strain can make Taurus a very sick little bull indeed.
The natural instinct of Taurus is to resist change, as change breeds discomfort and Taurus does like to feel comfortable and safe. But as we know, whilst not all change is good, some change is necessary in order to grow.
 
So, while all sorts of havoc is being wreaked in the workplace, what does Taurus do? Her 1st instinct is to swallow the stress (possibly though comfort eating) and retreat to a safe place. Over a period of time, this exacerbates any health problems.

So, what to do? Looking to the 2nd house and Gemini as a remedy, Taurus can do far worse than talk. Rather than hibernating get out there and be more social. Taurus, as a Venus ruled sign, knows how to enjoy herself, so make the time to meet friends for a meal- no matter what chaos is reigning. Whilst you may want to text a last minute apology to that coffee date, resist the urge. Taurus often has problems with expressing themselves, so talking about the issues in a social setting will help take the load off and release some of the internal pressure. Don’t worry about what impression your friends may have- talk to them & offload.
 
If you feel unable to express yourself to others, a journal is a great way of getting what is in your head out of it. Freeing some space in your brain (so to speak) will give more space for you to process the information which is flying at you.
Gemini uses information and mental stimulation to feel safe, so take this lesson and learn as much as you can about what is happening. Every little piece of information that you know will allow you to adjust that little bit more to what is going on around you.
 
Think also about your habits and their regularity. Whilst routine is great (and soothing) for Taurus, sometimes routine simply for the sake of routine can make a resistance to change even more entrenched. Again look to Gemini and make some ever so slight variations to your habits. This may be as simple as varying what you have on your sandwich for lunch just one day a week or maybe try altering your route to work.
 
Above all, include exercise in your routine- no matter how busy you are. Fitting in a walk around the shops at lunchtime or in the fresh air will give you the ability to think in a pressure free situation.
